We've been through 5 agencies so won't waste any more time with them. They make grand promises they can't deliver because the person they send says "I don't sweep or do dishes" or they sit and look at their phone. One took a 25 min break after her first 2 hours and then left an hour early in what was to be only a 4 hr shift!
So, I went to Care.com. What a joke! The applicants only post a couple of sentences that sound like Miss America contestants: "I love helping people".
Most of them have only a high school education but list their salary expectation as $15-$30/hr, which is nuts here in the south. And the profile pics look like something they'd send their boyfriend, not post for a job! Kissy faces? really?! Those under 28 and over 55 had a better presentation, but were unable to answer questions or follow instructions. I asked 5 of them for a resume' and got nothing back but questions that showed NONE of them read the job description I wrote. One woman sent only the names of two men as references without telling me who they are or what her full name is. Am I supposed to call John Smith and say " Hi, you don't know me but a woman named Becky gave me your number". He probably knows 9 females named Becky and will think I'm nuts.
